I'd like to share two hard-hitting videos on clergy abuse and the Catholic Church. First, the New York Times recently posted a 12-minute documentary entitled The Shame of the Church, which offers an overview of the U.S. clergy abuse crisis and the evolution of anti-abuse advocacy.
Second, Al Jazeera America Presents recently aired a special on financial malfeasance in the Catholic Church. Holy Money explores the Catholic Church's financial controversies, including money laundering, embezzlement, poor oversight, the financial dimensions of
the clergy abuse crisis, and Pope Francis' efforts to bring about financial reform.
Both are must-see films for anyone who wants to understand the Catholic Church's clergy abuse scandals.
